6:03 pm
out of line to knock president bush over his handling of 9/11. >> i took my daughter to her first debate on saturday, and -- i mean, i was embarrassed to see a candidate criticize a president on one of the worst days that we've had in american history. >> reporter: all south carolina's key republican players, now lining up against trump. haley and senator tim scott with rubio. senator lindsey graham in jeb bush's camp. today, trashing the billionaire. >> i think he's crazy. i think he's unfit for office. >> reporter: trump says graham's the crazy one. >> the guy is a nut job. i could push him over with a little thimble. boom. this guy -- let me tell you, this guy knows nothing. >> reporter: and now, trump taking on senator ted cruz, the candidate who could be his toughest competition. >> and for the first time in many months, there's a new national front-runner on the republican side. >> reporter: trump's lawyers

6:05 pm
tom, thank you. and there are also breaking developments on the democratic side tonight. new numbers in nevada showing a neck and neck battle. hillary clinton and bernie sanders, tied. clinton at 48%, sanders at 47%. she does lead in south carolina, but her campaign is well aware of the new national poll tonight, as well. which could spell a long and difficult battle ahead. hillary clinton now leading bernie sanders by just two points nationally. secretary clinton had a 31-point lead nationally just two months ago. and tonight, a revealing quote from clinton herself about her weakness on the campaign trail. abc's cecilia vega inside clinton headquarters tonight. >> i'm one of those mothers who met with her and was able to make it through. >> reporter: hillary clinton today, standing with the tearful mother of sandra bland, the chicago woman whose death in a jail cell sparked outrage. >> we need to face the reality of systemic racism. >> reporter: clinton and bernie sanders trying to woo minority

6:07 pm

6:08 pm
national security. >> need assist now. i have shots fired. >> reporter: since the bloody end of the san bernadino attack, the deadliest since 9/11, the fbi has been helplessly staring at syed farook's cell phone, an iphone 5c like this one. >> we still have one of those killer's phones that we have not been able to open. and it's been over two months now. >> reporter: a federal judge now siding with the fbi, ordering apple to find a way to hack into the iphone used by farook. tonight, apple is refusing, saying, if they break into the phone, it will set up a dangerous slippery slope. >> if you design a backdoor for one phone, you have to design it for all phones. >> reporter: the fbi suspects the phone may hold critical clues about who farook was communicating with, and where he and his wife, tashfeen malik, may have traveled. the problem? they don't have farook's four-digit password. the fbi believes that farook used apple's security option, basically a self-destruct mechanism, that renders all data on the phone permanently
6:09 pm
isn't entered after ten tries. but with 10,000 unique possibilities, the fbi knows cracking the code is nearly impossible in just ten tries, to design software to break into the phone. in an impassioned statement, ceo tim cook said, the government is asking apple to hack its own users, adding that the software is, quote, something we simply do not have and something we consider too dangerous to cook expressing those same minutes." >> there have been people that suggest we should have a backdoor, but the reality is, if you put a backdoor in, that backdoor is for everybody, for good guys and bad guys. backdoor. i don't want a door, i don't want a window, i don't want a i would like people to comply with court orders. >> reporter: the fight exmroegd presidential candidates weighing in. >> who do they think they are? no, we have to open it up. >> reporter: but apple is standing firm tonight, arguing, if they found a way to break
6:10 pm
to break into any phone, which could put the private data of millions of users at stake. >> and pierre thomas with us live from the fbi tonight. and pierre, you were telling us, this battle could effect far more than just the san bernardino case, when it comes to unlocking iphones? >> reporter: that's right, david. manhattan's chief prosecutor tells us, he alone is trying to open more than 150 encrypted iphones, in cases ranging from murder to sex crimes and robbery. it's an epic legal battle that could go all the way to the supreme court. david? >> all right, pierre thomas with us live tonight. pierre, thank you. now, to pope francis this evening, and his historic visit to mexico. these images coming in just moments ago here of the pope at the border, and the massive crowds gathered. that visit to the mexico/u.s. border, making headlines in the presidential race here in this country. donald trump saying the pope does not understand the danger of an open border. abc's chief foreign correspondent terry moran with the pope. plus, the moment pope francis
